Cable management in Corsair Carbide Spec-01

This was the case I used for my first build. Initially I just shoved the cables in the back and left some in the front, but later experienced high thermals. I have 2 120mm Antec spark 120 RGB @2000 rpm as intake and 2 for exhaust. But my messy cable work obstructs the airflow.

I have a corsair CX450W (non-modular) PSU and it has a long AF cable of molex connectors (im not sure about the name of connector, sorry). I cant hide it in the back and have to bundle it in the front. Moreover, there isn't any space for the cpu cable to be routed from the back! I had to route it over the mobo (over other components). Pls guide me if there are some more experienced ppl out there :(

If this is all you're worried about, dont. Cable management is almost entirely aesthetics. Your airflow is not affected by a few loose moles connectors.

Its not few, its a lot. My intake is already obstructed by the huge drive bay, and the bundle of molex connector just make it worse :(
